Support Comm Mental Health Care Uganda

Why we need your help

We raise money to fund the delivery of mental health care services in Uganda initially in the communities around Bwindi, Kagando and Kisiizi hospitals in the SW and now further afield.

All three hospitals have embarked on an extension of their mental health services outwards into the surrounding communities. Other hospitals in Uganda are starting to do likewise. 

The aim is to reduce dependency on hospital visits for treatment and significantly increase the quality and accessibility of services. Attendance at hospital is often costly and requires travel over significant distances with poor transport links.

Local staff have been recruited or redeployed and there are plans to hold more clinics and to carry out more home visits. Work will also be done with local leaders to increase the understanding of mental illness and to reduce stigma.

I met my friend Hugh Burgess on the Camino de Santiago in 2016 and it was an inspiring experience for us as well as many others. I saw him recently and he told me about the great work this charity is performing. Hope this helps!
